Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you are enjoying the weekend.  It is a very crisp Fall day here!!

Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week's Challenge:
This week the team is challenging you to make your creations sparkle!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize , a $ 15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, September 16. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by September 16 at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC29. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the sparkle challenge using the Sing to the Lord and Peace stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs. 

There is lots of my card but the photo does not show it well!! The dp is glittered as is my scalloped frame and my tag.  The layout uses the Mojo Monday sketch for this week.
